Bikes, saddles, wheels....What about tires?
I have been reading the forum for about 6 months. Lots of great information out there, thanks everyone...
I was wondering what everyone thought about tires and tire pressures. I bought the Vredestein race tires from Performance. I just put them on my bike yesterday- inflated them to 145. Wow! What a difference. I definitely felt more of the road. Perhaps it was in my mind, but I did feel a little faster (or was it the 20 mph tailwind?)...
Thoughts on tires anyone? Do they make a difference? If so, how much?
Oh, I chose these tires based on a mid-range price at my local Performance Bicycle shop (about $30/tire)...
